Gifts of Retirement Plans
You may name Siskin Children’s Institute as beneficiary of a percentage or specific amount of your assets, as directed through your will or estate plan.

If you are older than age 70.5 and are in this situation, please consider making a gift from these plans.

Gifts that Pay the Donor Income
It is possible to make a gift to the Institute while retaining income for yourself or your family. Ask your financial planner about the Charitable Gift Annuity or Charitable Remainder Annuity trust.

Charitable Lead and Remainder Trust
Establishing a trust for the benefit of the Institute may provide tax planning benefits for you and your family while making a larger gift than you might have expected.

Gifts of Stock
Gifting stock directly to the Institute gives the donor tax benefits and allows the organization access to the gift immediately .

Gifts of Life Insurance
If no longer needed for family security, life insurance proceeds are an excellent way to make a significant gift to the Institute.

Gifts of Property
It might be possible to make a gift of property such as a home or farm and still reside there during your lifetime.

From working directly with children to helping with administrative tasks, volunteers help us achieve more and make a bigger impact in our community than we could do alone.

Our founders, Mose and Garrison Siskin, knew that stepping up to make a difference in the lives of others was important. Our volunteers carry their mission forward today.
